I got a little time last weekend and yesterday for stitching. Last weekend Blue Ribbon Designs' Countdown to Christmas was on the frame.
I started with it here:

Stitched on 40-count Lakeside Linens' Magnolia with recommended fibers
I started a new project yesterday - Liz Turner Diehl's Flamingerge Egg. It is a bit outside of my usual, but I have a thing for flamingos although I do tend to keep it in check so there are no flamingo decorations in my yard or my house although I do have a fair number in my cubical. The entire kit came in this box:
The only thing missing is the styrofoam egg for the finishing. And here is what I stitched yesterday:

Stitched on 32-count Antique White Belfast with Madeira fibers
The colors are more coral and turquoise than the orange and blue that are showing in the photo. The piece came with Madeira cotton and silk fibers which I had never used, but do really like stitching with them. The packaging is interesting and keeps the fibers clean and easily organized but it is not ideal for storing leftover bits.
Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden is on the frame for this week.
